This DVD set includes 18 minute episodes and a full-color study guide. The study guide is a perfect companion because it brings out only the important things to remember from the films. This is such a great DVD series, especially for visual learners. Dave Stotts makes you feel like you are in the scene with him as he, very conversationally, talks about the people, places and events from this time in history. Specifically for families who want to teach history from a Christian worldview, this series can be used as curriculum with the study guide, or it can be used as a family movie time with discussion. It is truly that engaging. If you choose to use it as a Bible Study, you will find the study guide to be just as engaging. He also has an Adventures program that provides online curriculum for Bible, American, and Ancient history that offers a 7-day trial. I just signed up for the trial to see if that is also something that may work for our family.
